I've tried sshand scp for tramp's method (both work for tramp), yet image-dired thumbnail creation fails

Thumb could not be created for /scp:raspi:/media/pi/91D4-7E58//IMG_1.JPG: exited abnormally with code 1

Do I need to setup filesharing e.g. nfs or is there something else I could try before?

Both, tramp and image-dired work fine on local files

image-dired uses start-process and call-process. This means, it cannot handle remote files.

If you want support for remote files, you might write an Emacs bug report.
